Dealing With Marital Distractions

Song of Songs is truly a book about love.  Not just ordinary love in the sterile sense that we often think the Bible presents, but whole-hearted erotic love between a man and a woman.  The marriage relationship which God oversees is truly meant to be special and fulfilling for man and wife.  More on that later.

A popular verse taken from this book is:

“Catch for us the foxes, the little foxes that ruin the vineyards, our vineyards that are in bloom.”    — Song of Songs 2:7

This is a very appropriate passage, meant to warn a man and a wife about the “little things” that can creep into a marriage which take away from what God intended.  The writers advice is to deal with these early and as often as needed.  A man and wife should have the type of open relationship where they can talk about their struggles and fears…and sins.  That is a hard thing, but not nearly as hard as the consequences of a broken marriage.  To keep your marriage in bloom for as long as you live, deal with the distractions right away.
